I'm not good at being good, although I am good at being bad. This was a slight shopping spree, I was treating myself, as I promised I would, to a few cosmetic items from Space NK and NARS, there was one item I wanted that was sold out through Nars but ASOS had it so I had to get it, I then had a little browse at items that I'd previously saved and were now on sale, so I bought myself a few bargains. I blame having the flu! I was rather impressed that next day delivery was possible, I ordered yesterday and they arrived today - this is thanks to DPD, normal post service hasn't been happening due to the snow but DPD managed it!
So, what did I get? I'm afraid I've been in bed all day because of feeling so rotten, I did test my new shoes but that's about it so my photos focus on the patterns of the tops I bought rather than the shape, here we go.
|ASOS Pocket Square With Bad Cat Print £2.00|
This is actually a pocket square, it's very Felix the Cat meets Ed Roth, I actually plan to get a frame for it at some point as I think it's too gorgeous to be shoved in a pocket with a little bit of the picture poking out so will be showing it a little more respect.
|NARS Soft Touch Shadow Pencil in Iraklion £18.50|
The eye pencil that started it all, I'll review this properly at a later date. I'm not sure what this has to do with Crete but Iraklion is a gorgeous smoky rose quartz, I want to use this to create both dramatic looks and quick, light but eye-brightening looks for work.
|Glamorous Tall Space Dye Jumper £19.00|
This melds two of my loves, the Glamorous tall range (that and ASOS tall are my go-to tall ranges, both have a fantastic variety and a perfect fit) and Space dye, I love anything space dye, there seems to be a lot of space dye patterned items around these day which pleases me. This is a very cosy polyester jumper with 3/4 length sleeves, This is going to be a perfect jumper for in-between winter and spring.
|Only Long Sleeve Top £14.00|
Another lifelong obsession of mine, stripes, now stripes are always everywhere but there are certain items of clothing that have to be just right for me. I was actually in the market for an evenly spaced, black and white striped long sleeve top with a scoop neckline so lucky for me this was on sale. I love that both the top and the sleeves are super long on me, below my hips and below my wrists, I'm 5'10" so I sometimes find clothing a little short on me.
|Vero Moda Tunic In Paisley Print £24.00|
Another love of mine, paisley print. Now this item I picked up mainly to wear for work, it's fairly smart but with a casual fit. It's a light polyester material so perfect for spring/summer, the sleeves are just below the elbow - another thing making it perfect for work. Plus the colour is nice and bright but light, I hate wearing dark colours at work so this makes it even more perfect.
|ASOS Snap Silver Heels £19.00|
I already have these in black but had always planned to pick up the silver pair as I've wanted a pair of silver heels for a while. I don't wear leather so when I find a pair of comfortable polyurethane shoes I always want to stock up on them. Not only that but these are heels that I can actually walk in which is a miracle.
|and one last shot of me modelling them in a pair of fetching Bugs Bunny socks! |
So that's it, I shouldn't have bought any new clothes, I'm supposed to be waiting for when I get to my ideal size but after this it will be nothing else for a while. I will however be posting my pre-birthday cosmetic treats that I've picked up from NARS, Space NK, Models Own, and feelunique.com, once they arrive. I should point out that I did also use money I'd saved from last month so not a complete blow out with this months pay, it's a good job February is a short month.
